Mid-century Women Writers PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Mid-century Women Writers free pdf Mid-century Women Writers reconsiders Australian women writing after the cataclysm of World War II, from within post-war culture- women demonstrating the agency of writing fiction before the formal politicisation of feminism. This issue assembles essays on numerous of these writers, presented in their shared historical context and through the rubrics and perspectives of the present. The issue includes essays on Eleanor Dark, Eve Langley, Jessica Anderson, Christina Stead, Dorothy Hewett, Thea Astley and Elizabeth Harrower. Some of the essays deal with the late works of established writers, such as Helen O'Reilly's discussion of Eleanor Dark's last published work, Lantana Lane and Elizabeth Treep's analysis of Eve Langley's unpublished novel Bancroft House, while Karen Lamb's essay on Thea Astley provides a keen appreciation of a new woman writer dealing with the criticism of her peers. The essays range from readings of individual works to broader assessments of writers' oeuvre, and from historical fiction to novels depicting the radical changes in Australian life from the 1960s. There are also two review essays on new studies of Elizabeth Jolley and Shirley Hazzard. This line-up constitutes a very significant volume on a group of writers often overlooked in the various categorisations of Australian literature.
